Alec has been climbing religiously for the last 9 years. He grew up in Carrollton, Texas where he played soccer for 15 years. After he quit, he had a bit of an identity crisis as an athlete. He found climbing shortly after, and has been pursuing hard climbs and good times ever since. In his free time, Alec loves working out, exploring new restaurants, and going to Mavericks games.

Chief Barketing Officer
The original Oso and primary motivation for our founder to spend more time in Dallas. Super friendly, he’ll see you and expect attention. Driven by his love for pets and salmon. 12/10 is a good boy.

Events Coordinator + Social Media Manager
Kelly is Oso’s Events Coordinator and Social Media Manager. She began climbing four years ago on a whim during a Colorado camping trip with friends, and she has been in love with the sport and community ever since. She enjoys teaching yoga, climbing, painting, exploring and traveling. She loves to create unique and special experiences, and loves meeting new people and making new friends – say hello next time you see her in the gym!
Kevin isn’t a climber, but he loves climbers and the climbing culture of inclusivity, supporting each other, and pursuing a passion. He does his best thinking wandering around the gym, so say hi the next time you see him. (The cute dog’s name is Josie, and she’s way cooler than Kevin).
Kyle is a staple of the Dallas climbing community and has been a part of the gym scene for almost a decade. When he’s not getting a new tattoo or watching the Dallas Stars, you’ll find him at the helm of the gym.
Manuel was born in Uruguay and moved to the states in 2002. His parents put him in Boy Scouts when he was 10, and his troop would take a couple of outdoor climbing trips a year.
The first time they went he immediately fell in love! In his junior year of high school he discovered indoor climbing, and he started working and climbing at the gym as soon as he could. Eventually, the opportunity to route set arose and he jumped on it.
He loves creating movement for people to experience, and if you see him in the gym he’d love to talk to you about your project!
